If you have ever wanted to have a really original lamp in your house that, one way is to create your own. You can do this by using some objects that you would not normally think would be used. One really interesting idea is to incorporate bird houses into a lamp design. For this sort of craft, you will want to use a wooden birdhouse. It does not matter if it is looking a bit old because you’ll first paint it in the color that you want. Then, you attached a small pole and lamp shade to the top.
